How it works

TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes allow you to recycle almost every type of waste. Simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet. 

What happens to the waste?

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

Accepted waste

Pens, pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers, marker caps, permanent markers, and permanent marker caps. 

Please do NOT...

include wooden pencils, crayons, paint or paint brushes. 

We do not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps nor any item that is or has come into contact with anything classified as flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.

Best practices for recycling

Please ensure no unaccepted waste is included.
